Gender In Third World Politics by Georgina Waylen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This work offers a gendered analysis of Third World politics. It uses a wide definition of the political to examine both "high politics" and political activity at the grassroots, focusing particularly on women's organizations. It also examines the impact of policy and politics on gender relations and on different groups of women. After a general discussion of the major theoretical questions involved in the study of gender in Third World politics, and the nature of the Third World and development, the analysis is developed through the in-depth study of different political formations. These are colonialism, revolution, authoritarianism, and democracy and democratization. Examples are taken from much of the Third World.
